Hello I’m Ana the host of My Symphony Of Life. Welcome back to another show! I’d like to take the time to thank you for listening to my symphony of life and allowing me to be part of your journey. Do you have a topic idea, would you like me to share more of your favorite hobbies, do you know someone that I should talk to on this show? If you commented or thought of an answer for all three questions, please provide the feedback by emailing me at email@example.com. I do look forward to reading your comments as well as responding to them as well. With all of my past guests I’ve formed friendships and with that being said on this show my featured guest is Claire Mitchell of The Girl Means Business. The Girl Means Business was created to inform, inspire and to show that there is a better way to do things. Claire’s www.thegirlsmeanbusiness.com. For all of you who have a business, you’ll l enjoy this show because Claire is going to talk about “Why Your Business Needs A Vision”. I’m also going to talk about Pinterest and your business. Let’s get started creating your own symphony of life.
Pinterest is your business!!!!
To me Pinterest is all about the love of photo pinning and what I mean by that is it’s a photo sharing site in which you can create, categorize and collect all that does inspire you. Here’s some information about Pinterest:
For your business, It’s important to make that first impression by creating one powerful profile and what I mean by that is you need to add a quality picture of your company, share a little bit about your business, the companies social media sites, and the website as well. Note that you have 200 characters to make a strong first impression. Let’s make every word count!
With Pinterest for your business it’s important to have strong visual “picture” content in order to make Pinterest a power house tool for your marketing endeavors. Visual learners will love you for it! You maybe on other social media sites, which is great. However, with Pinterest you’ll be able to gain momentum with this wonderful versatile tool by perhaps run competitions, contests or sweepstakes. If you decide to run contest, make sure to define the goals for the contests, etc. Note, perhaps you can co-sponsor contests and cross promote.
You’ll be able to create your own custom service/product board, rearrange, delete, have a group board (where you can invite people/mastermind group) and if you put a picture in the wrong board you can simple edit it and put it in the correct board it’s supposed to be in.
Add a pin. I say Pin, Pin, Pin, by curating your pictures and organizing them in the boards that you’ve created. Create content by always pinning! However, it’s important to pin strategically! As well as follow people strategically! With that being said, you can search key terms and follow those who do share the same interests.
Freeze Frame! You can upload a pin a picture you’ve taken from the sales meeting and in turn you can share the pictures taken from the sales meeting on the board that you’ve created. You can also create a private board in which you can invite people to. When describing your post in order to get the most views you need to put hashtags in your post. This will allow users to search for keywords within the Pinterest community. For example #audiosmaximus, #podcast, #blog, and #crafts. If you have products or services that your looking to promote, you need to put the $. What that does is when your in the description and you notate $1.00 or the amount of the product or service it will categorize the item under gifts. When you have pictures you can put a watermark in which will define that it’s your picture and also put your website or business name on it as well.
It’s also a place where you can meet like minded individuals who share in the same interests that you do. It’s a place for great learning because if there’s a tutorial on social media tips, you can click on the picture and it will take you to a website in which you can go in depth of learning more on that particular topic. Comment on certain pins in order for more people to follow you. Also, if there’s a pin that you like you can like the pin and repin. You can also see who’s following another person and follow those followers.
It’s quite important that in order to use this great versatile tool you need to find out what your customers like, value and what they’d like to see more of.
I’m going to share what I have on my Pinterest account and share how we have the Audios Maximus Network account setup. On our Audios Maximus account we’ve created boards based around the show names. All of the content for that particular podcast will be uploaded/added to the boards that I created.
For My Symphony Of Life I’ve created the first two rows dedicated to our business and then other boards that I value such as creative writing, poetry, art, beauty, shoe closet look in, Dress you up which is a group board in which I invite people to pin to.
Thank you for joining me for another episode of My Symphony Of Life
Until next time, be the conductor you were meant to be.
